Admiral Ackbar quotes from The Force Awakens

X Wing Pilot "Ello Asty" quotes from The Force Awakens

 "Ello Asty" quotes from The Force Awakens movie.

Asty or rather the "Bullhead" dude as he was known to many before he was more properly named is a pilot for the Resistance.

He fought along side Poe Dameron when he took on the First Order. His name is a play on the Beaties Boy's album Hello Nasty. 


“But no damage!”


“I’m hit!”

Ello Asty was voiced by Mathew Wood. The same Mathew Wood that did the voice acting for General Grevious in Revenge of the Sith!

Who is Koyi Mateil?

This is Koyi Mateil

Koyi Mateil - Revenge of the Sith
Are they real or are they just spectacular?
Koyi Mateil made a brief appearance in Revenge of the Sith during the scene at the Galaxies Opera House.

The scene was notable for being when Palpatine revealed to Anakin he could help save Padme from dying and now infamously supplying the knowledge that Twi'leks are no strangers to getting breast implants...

Photos of Star Wars characters 'Out of character'

Mirror, mirror on the wall 
Sometimes we might be guilty of taking Star Wars too seriously. Not as serious as some Star Wars fans mind you. We don’t really care about parsecs actually being a measurement of distance. (Or do you? – Ed) So it’s good to take a step back and have some fun with Star Wars, as that’s what movies are all about really, fun. 

Here’s some  of the characters from the films being caught a little bit out of character at amusing or interesting moments. Carrie Fisher is always having a blast on set – indeed it looks like the Star Wars production sets were a fun place to be!

Everything you need to know about Anthony Daniels, you know, the polite Englishman that played C3PO

Daniels as C3PO
Here's some facts about C3PO and the actor who gets inside the golden suit, Anthony Daniels.
  • Daniels has played C-3PO in all six of the Star Wars feature films from the original installment in the series. 2005's Star Wars: Episode III: Revenge of the Sith, he also performed the vocal tracks for scenes that featured a computer-generated C-3PO. Daniels also took part in the Star Wars spin offs Droids and The Clone Wars (film and show)
  • Daniels has reprised the role for cameos on The Muppet Show and Sesame Street (where he befriended Big Bird) and most recently a quick part in Legoman.
  • Anthony Daniels did a cameo in Attack of the Clones - check him out in the bar scene where the assassin is caught.
  • Anthony is the only actor to feature in all six Star Wars films.
  • George Lucas took a lot of his inspiration for Star Wars from a film called The Hidden Fortress (amongst other things). It featured a pair of bickering sidekicks who served as comic relief and crucially managed to help keep the plot ticking along. Lucas adopted this concept and applied it to the C3PO and R2D2. The two loosely serve to tell the tale of Star Wars from their viewpoint and naturally make a few saves along the way. 
  • Here’s three choice quotes from the golden rod:
    • "I suggest a new strategy, Artoo: let the Wookie win." 
    • "Excuse me sir, but that R2-D2 is in prime condition, a real bargain" 
    • "Sir, it's very possible this asteroid is not stable"
  • Famed artist Ralph McQuarrie designed C3PO by taking inspiration from the robot Maschinenmensch that featured in Metropolis.
  • As C-3PO, he has the first line in A New Hope (Did you hear that? They've shut down the main reactor) and the last line in the Revenge of the Sith (oh no!) , neatly tying the two trilogies together. 
  • In Sith, All filmed shots of C3PO had the green screen set reflecting in his shiny gold armor, so digital effects artists in post-production had to digitally redo C3PO's armor frame by frame to remove any traces of the green reflection.
  • C3PO is proficient in Bocce.
